Newly elected MPs in Kenya have opposed a proposed pay review to cut lawmakers' salaries by 15%, a local TV station has tweeted. Newly-elected MPs start bid to block new SRC pay structure slashing their salaries from Sh710,000 to Sh621,250 per month. The pay review, which includes reduction on some generous allowances, was due to come into effect after the 8 August election. Kenyan MPs are some of the best-paid lawmakers in the world, and the pay cut is part of a government plan to reduce spending on public sector wages. The average income in Kenya is $150 (£117) per month.
